The writing prompt for today is DARE.
That I am an introvert is not news. From that you may have deduced that evangelism is not my spiritual gift. I'm much more comfortable behind the safety of my keyboard.
I wrote a short paragraph that hit on a few major points:
- Salvation by grace, not by works: I can't do anything to earn my way into heaven
- Religion vs. relationship: Religion tends to make ritual the goal (have to do this or that)
- Faith is an integral part of who we are: It doesn't fit into a compartment on Sunday morning
I sent that along, with some pre- and post-paragraph text. I don't know how these two people will react upon reading it, but I am confident that I did what the Lord wanted me to do.
Doing God's will can feel like a daring move--I felt as though I was bungee jumping!--but He does equip us to do what He sends us to do. I rest in the assurance that I am not responsible for anyone's conversion. I can spread the Word, but only the Holy Spirit can move in someone's heart.
